Impressive work indeed.
I would expect to reinforce everything before he went the HPF route. I think those transfer cases can be built up and hold some HP.

What do the XI guys do with a super charger? how much can the TF cases hold up too?

And join all the other 335i xdrive owners out there?? Where is the fun in that??? I have the only M3 sedan AWD in the world bro, that's the life style and the culture of tuning. To be different and create something that hasn't been done b4. Impressive auto is the only way to go..

transfer case is build in at a 330xd, european diesel with 204 HP and 290lb. Some 330xd's here are chipped at 250 HP and 360lb and the transfer case still working. Only new oil all 30.000 miles and it will work fine, like all other things. Rest of the xi is similar the same than in x3 and x5 with 4.8l V8 or 3.0 Diesel.

Isn't AWD too weak to handle M3 motor? INB4 explosion

I'm sure before the Guy dumped thousands of dollars they looked into those matters. Upgraded axels and transfer case.

Could a non-M AT take the power from an S54? would it even fit?

Swap was not easy at all, yes it is 6 speed & ill post more pics and videos as time progresses. As far as the transfer case it has been modified, so are the axles all around. Which was the first question raised if the XI can hold the power of the M3 & I'm proud to say that there were 3 BMW CERTIFIED master Tech's were working on my swap. If anyone wants further info on this swap contact impressive auto center and they will be more than happy to help you out if interested in this swap.
